ploperations/classification — version 1.1.0 Nov 8th 2019

classification

Build Status

The classification module is used internally at Puppet to do two key things:

  • create facts based on a node's host and domain name
  • verify that the facts provided during a puppet run match the values parsed from the node's cert

This helps prevent attacks via fact overrides.

Note: Incorrect facts can still be associated with a node, since facts are sent before compilation.

Description

Unless you have a naming convention that exactly matches what we are using this module will not work out of the box for you. It is provided here in hopes that the underlying ideas will be useful in your own works.
